Moustapha Work Permit!

The official site have confirmed the rumblings that late summer signing Moustapha Salifou has had work permit troubles so has been unable to join up with the team.

Following his signing a new Vital forum member suggested he was being rejected due to work permits and in truth most of the board members thought the poster was winding us up. Seems he wasn't so wide of the mark after-all!

Martin O'Neill explained: 'He should be here in the next couple of days. He had a bit of difficulty in getting the work permit, or a renewal, whatever it was. I have been told by the agent and the club that he should be here in the next couple of days. We will have to have a look and see what sort of shape he is in. He has been training with the team that we took him from.'

Bit strange that the official site brought out some old comments including this from the Villa boss though! 'For somebody who's played 40 internationals at 24 years of age, it was a deal well worth doing for us and getting a work permit wasn't a problem. It's absolutely and utterly risk-free.'

looking forward to seeing him, I doubt he realises what a stir he has caused amongst us!

I just love how easy his name makes it to have silly article titles!
The Fear
I think we'd all worked out that it was immigration clearance that was holding up his arrival, but even so it was a lengthy delay before this matter was rectified compared to similar situations. Still, all's well that ends well, now lets see what he's made of.

You can hear his old dear from here..."You mustapha Job".Being compared to as the african Zidane...he mustapha a good touch, and he mustpaha a bit of skill.However from the Youtube videos he mustapha few extra training sessions on finishing and keeping the bloody ball down. Well one thing,with all the young lads in the squad, he mustapha laugh!!...I could go all day..!!
